When i turn it on just the green lights and nothing on display with 16 beeps


There are lots of reasons for the beeps. Most of the time its a hardware issue and most of it is the RAM. Please red the below link and hope it would be of help.

You may try to do some isolation of the problem. You may
  • remove the RAM memory and check if the beeping stops
  • remove the Harddrive and check if the beeping stops
  • boot the computer using external device like USB CD/DVD Drive, floppy drive with DOS...etc and check if it goes through.
From here you would know what causing this error. Hope this helps.

I added a sata harddrive to the pc, it never worked again, I removed the new hd and nothing. When I turn on the machine, I only get several beeps, no signal to monitor, nothing else.... help pls.


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even something as small as a faulty electrical extensions or fan lead can cause this problem or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

When I turn on my packard bell ixtreme 6052 nothing appears yet it does see computer but does not even go to bios and harddrive read light remains on and harddrive is constantly ticking like it's...


This could be lots of things (bad HD, bad Mother board, bad RAM,etc...) first you need to narrow down the possible cause, open the computer, take out every thing that can be unplugged (I MEAN EVERYTHING) RAM, PCI cards, VIDEO cards, all storages HD, CD ROM, etc... just leave the CPU and power supply plugged in, than power up the computer and listen for BEEP's if you hear a series of BEEP's this means the CPU, power supply and mother board are GOOD, than (with power OFF each time) re-install the components you taken out (ONE at a time) to see which device causes the system crash... I've seen a modem card causing a system mall function once rediculous but true...

Good luck!

How do iknow if my motherboard is bad on my computer


Usually, by a process of elimination.

First, inspect the motherboard -- all those round towers are capacitors; any that are leaking (brown stuff) are bad news; any towers bulging at the top, instead of flat, are bad news.

If you turn the computer on, and the fans start to spin, and the disk-drive makes a bit of noise for a short time, then the power-supply probably is NOT the problem.

If you turn it on, and you get multiple "beeps", then it's either the RAM or the video-card.

If you turn it on, and nothing happens, it's the CPU or the RAM or the power-supply.

Disconnect the disk-drive, the CD-drive, the floppy-drive, and all USB devices. If you then turn it on, and you don't get a single "beep",
it's the motherboard or RAM or power-supply.

Test the RAM in another computer.

Temporarily connect a different power-supply to your computer;
if it starts properly, it's your power-supply.

Won't boot


Turn it off.
Disconnect the AC power-cord.
Disconnect all the devices (floppy, disk-drive, CD-ROM).
Remove all "extra"add-on cards (modem, network, TV, 2nd video).
Remove all the RAM.
Connect the AC power-cord.
Turn it on.
Does it "beep", to complain that _NO_ RAM is available?
If not, the motherboard is "dead".
